It’s time for another KionSai! Kion Dojo is back with thunder and groove and international support from some of the most innovative and creative artists from the taiko community. Together, they will carry the rhythm and the joy of drumming into every corner of the concert hall. Active taiko players as well as taiko fans can look forward to a fantastic festival!
Kion Dojo - Hamburg
with Special Guests from TAWOO - Japan
Kion Dojo has been making taiko danceable and groovy since 2006, and has taken its modern style of taiko - infused with expression, joy and creativity - from the rehearsal rooms to the stage. This time, the performance teams of Kion Dojo will be supported again by members of the Japanese Tawoo Dojo, among them Kaoly Asano (GOCOO), a very special personality in taiko, who has developed a completely new way of taiko!
Coritani - England
Coritani is the professional performance group from England's Humber Taiko Company. Coritani perform as a small ensemble and work with other musicians, artists and poets on collaborative projects. We are very happy to welcome them to KionSai!
Coritani not "only" play taiko, they are professionally trained musicians that creatively enrich their playing with singing and other instruments. On top of that, they are very active in their region, teaching a large number of local kids and adult taiko groups. Every year, their work is presented at their "Humber Taiko Festival", where Kion Dojo was invited to perform last year. The audience can look forward to not only intensive drumming, but also quiet and delicate sounds.
Tsuchigumo Daiko - Scotland
Tsuchigumo Daiko is an organisation based in central Scotland committed to the promotion and study of Wadaiko across the country and beyond, through classes, outreach, workshops, and performances. The group was founded in early 2016, by experienced taiko teachers and performers Martin Doyle and Shonagh Walker.
By drawing on a broad spectrum of musical and artistic influences, and with due respect to the history and traditions of taiko, the group seeks to create its own signature sound, punctuated by an exciting, creative, and highly energetic physical performance style.
